Thank you for visiting our website. Our team of professional staff is eager to serve you. We offer all lines of insurance and our specialists can customize your insurance portfolio to meet your specific needs.

We are very proud to offer an annual Client Review Program that allows clients the opportunity to review their entire portfolio in a brief, personal meeting.

I have been with The Co-operators since 1983. I have operated three successful sales offices and have an extensive claims background that has allowed us to identify and protect client needs. I am a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) with the Insurance Institute of Canada (1991), and am also a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Certified Health Insurance Specialist (CHS) with Advocis, the Financial Advisors Association of Canada.

If you are from Airdrie or the surrounding area are looking for great service and sound advice, you should be dealing with us!

Why choose co-operatives?

Co-operatives like The Co-operators Group Limited connect their values to supporting the communities where they live and work. They are viable businesses that are more concerned with serving your needs than making money, and they look for ways to serve you better by creating ways for you to influence their business decisions. In return, they ensure you have the information you need to make choices that are best for you.

There are hundreds of co-ops benefiting Canadians across the country; all are strong businesses owned and operated by the members who use their services and governed based on shared values. Look for them in your community.
